The fences are down on the new Esperance Skate Park, allowing skaters and the general community to access the youth precinct.
The new skate park was designed by leading skate park designers Convic, who were awarded the tender by Council, along with significant input from the community. It has been made possible thanks to funding and support from the Department of Regional Development, Lotterywest and Tourism WA.
The new Esperance Skate Park is a unique, iconic and site responsive multi-purpose, multi-generational facility. This is an extension of our existing award winning waterfront, which will allow people to walk all the way along the waterfront to Taylor St. The new area complements the existing uses and facilities of the recreational precincts along the foreshore and will be a central social hub on the beachfront for youth and the broader community of Esperance. The extended pathways improve access for cruise ship passengers into town and means we can now walk from Castletown Quays to Taylor St on formed paths.
An official opening on the 3-4 December called Edge of the Bay Esperance which will also include pro skater workshops, competitions, demos and product jams, live music and food vendors.
Users of the area who post photos to social media are encouraged to use the hashtags #EdgeoftheBay and #EsperanceWA.
